Great organization, Tough place to work

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsThe mission of the organization is fantastic. They do so much to help others and help save lives that you really feel good abut what you do on a day to day basis. There are also some very good people to work with.

ConsThe organization is going through some changes and there have not been a lot of opportunities to advance. They need to change from a culture of reducing to one of building in order for staff to feel safe and appreciated.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
